It could be less than you’re currently paying. There are incentives and credits that manufacturers and distributors could miss if they don’t know what applies to them. LSL CPAs helps owners, CFOs and controllers keep costs in line and reduce taxes. We also understand the value of incentives such as IC-DISC and empowerment zones to help manufacturers remain competitive long term.

Whether your company sells mainly in Orange County and the greater SoCal region or is involved in multi-state and international commerce, LSL is experienced with the tax, assurance and cost-saving measures that make sense for you. We assist a range of manufacturers and distributors — from computer, medical device and plastic molding manufacturers to machine shops, printing suppliers, oil distributors and more.
